Start saving water - It's water conservation month

Clearwater, Florida --April is Water Conservation Month. The City of Clearwater's Public Utilities department encourages residents to conserve water. By implementing a few simple strategies, you can help save one of our greatest resources. Here are some things you can do:

- Fix drippy faucets. A one-drip-per-second leak can waste as much as seven gallons of water in one day, so take time this month to fix your leaky faucets.

- Take showers instead of baths, since a typical five-minute shower uses about 28 gallons less water than a bath.

- Check your outdoor sprinkler system and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered-not the house, sidewalk, or street.

- Be sure to comply with watering restrictions by watering your lawn during the authorized days and times. (Watering restrictions changed last month. Information is available at myclearwater.com/watering.)

- Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when hand-washing your car, so you aren't wasting water while washing your vehicle.

- Install low-flow water devices. Clearwater Public Utilities gives away water-saving devices such as low-flow showerheads, sink aerators, and toilet tummies. Call (727) 562-4600 to obtain one.

- Wash clothes in cold water as often as you can, and use the smallest load function possible on your washing machine.

- When you clean your fish tank, use the water you've drained for your plants; it's rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, providing you with a free and effective fertilizer.

 - Learn and implement the art of Florida-Friendly Landscaping, a beautiful way to protect Florida's natural environment and conserve water in your landscape.

Join in the effort to save water! For more information, call (727) 562-4960 or visit myclearwater.com. Select "Public Utilities" from the "City Departments" drop-down box, and click on "Water Conservation."
